Systematic scanning of the earth surface could be achieved for the first time in 1978, with the launch of the earth observation system NOAA-AVHRR. Some twenty years later, the SPOT-VEGETATION instrument introduced significant improvements at the levels of image quality, timeliness and availability. Since the start in April 1998, VITO is responsible for the central processing, archiving and distribution of the VEGETATION data. This paper briefly announces how a similar service is being established at VITO to provide the same kind of image data from the recently launched METOP-AVHRR.
